Why Shona will never be an official language

5 years ago | 15466 Views
The reason why Shona will never be an official language is that almost everything means the same thing e.g:
Roof - denga,
Sky - denga,
Heaven - denga,

then Standing - yakamira,
its stopping - yakamira,
its upright - yakamira,
its not running - yakamira,
its halted - yakamira,
its waiting - yakamira,
its erect - yakamira

....then gadget - chinhu,
item - chinhu,
Thing - chinhu,
Penis - chinhu,
Vagina - chinhu

Shona, a language of few words!

That is a very big lie Shonas are not dominant. Balamawala kuphela that is why during the xenophobic attacks they fell victim. If you were dominating why did you not retaliate.
